Berkey chest/drawers  

I am assisting my aunt with an estate sale and wondering if this piece is being price correctly.  It is a very interesting and well maintained Berkey and Gay cedar dresser with a top cedar chest.  I have researched the stamps can give an estimate for age but what about value?  

Thank you in advance,


Hi Jackie,

Your chest was most likely made in the 1930-1940's.

As for value, depending what part of the country you are in I feel that
$275. to $350. would be the range. to an interested party.

Best Wishes,
